Does Overnight Charging Really Damage Your Smartphone Battery?

Last updated on

The dawn of smartphones, phablets, and other portable devices arrived like a flood on our planet since the last decade and it suffices to say they wouldn’t be going anywhere soon.

These devices are powered by electricity to perform daily tasks just in the same manner we need food. They are all lithium-ion battery-powered and they remain undernourished (in terms of charge) because they don’t consistently get enough charge for one reason or the other.

In the end, when it is time to sleep is usually the only time when you can plug in your smartphone to charge – but that raises the very common question that many people seem to never stop asking: “isn’t it bad to charge my phone overnight?”. The question is one that rises out of curiosity and the need to prolong smartphone life.

Android Authority has a video in which they presented a perfect explanation as they answer the question.

Now you know that your smart device can handle overnight charging – but that notwithstanding, you shouldn’t make it a habit, and an easy way to take care of that is to make use of power banks.

A power bank with a 10,000 mAh battery  has enough energy to last up to charging cycles depending on the battery size of your smartphone or tablet. Either way, you should be good to go.

So now you know better about overnight charging and how it affects your smart device. Feel free to drop your comments down below if you have anything to add.
